[TxMt] Spaces instead of tabs -> per filetype basis?

I find this essential too, I achieve it using simple preferences items
in the bundle editor.

E.g. for python I create a "tabs" preferences item and add the following:

  softTabs = "1";
  tabSize = "4";

I also set the scope to "source.python" to ensure it only gets used
for python. I have custom settings like this for many of my filetypes
(e.g. 2 spaces for xml).

Hope this covers what you want.
